Yeah, directv needs to deal already. everyone else has and if they would just put their customers ahead of their bottom line they would accept any deal twc is putting on the table. not sure why they are holding their own customers hostage here.


Yah, all 4 people who have all those services.

I can honestly see both sides here. $4 for every subscriber is a lot to ask for one of, if not the largest TV providers out there, especially when the large majority of their customers won't even get the main benefit of the channel. Of course, the only one losing out will be direct tv, so I guess it's up to them to decide whether losing customers is worth the $4 cost to their subscribers. I wouldn't doubt they're out asking their subscribers if they'd actually want the channel, to try to gauge what percentage of their customers even wants the channel.

All 4? Cox is #2 in Southern California (behind only DirecTV) and has 1.2 million subscribers in So Cal alone.

If DirecTV wasn't so greedy, they'd just accept TWC's terms already. Greed sure is evil eh?

It's up to DirecTV and Dish now to accept the deal. I mean, it's not like TWC isn't offering it to them. But these guys I'm guessing, are a little more price sensitive than their cable counterparts. After all, they have to add the retention cost of giving premium content away for free to limit churn while the cable guys don't have to worry about it as much since they monopolize certain markets.

Anyone see the latest Laker post on FB? They basically asked Laker fans to screw DirecTV. "There are other companies out there..." :man10:

Dear Lakers fans,

We know that many of you are DirecTV subscribers and remain frustrated that you can't watch the Lakers on Time Warner Cable SportsNet and Time Warner Cable Deportes.

We want to remind you of your choices and what you can do to watch the games as well as all the immersive content on these networks. Verizon FiOS, Time Warner Cable, Cox, Charter, Bright House Networks, and AT&T U-Verse have all reached agreements to carry Time Warner Cable SportsNet and Time Warner Cable Deportes.

If you are interested in getting information about the other TV providers that service your area, visit iwantmylakers.com, enter your zip code, select your TV provider and then click continue. The next screen will list TV providers in your area that are carrying the networks and give you information on how to contact them.

Thank you for your continued support.

Sincerely,
The Los Angeles Lakers

They're not asking Laker fans to screw DirecTV at all. They're letting people know that if they want to watch Laker games, there are choices, and if you want to see what your choices are, go to iwantmylakers.com and enter your zip.

The Lakers have everything to gain by DirecTV jumping aboard.

^ Right, and the Lakers have much to LOSE if they don't. So yes, they ARE suggesting to fans that they switch.

No they're not. But it's a lot more fun to read in to it like that.

Not everyone is going to switch, so, the Lakers stand to lose the most should DirecTV (and Dish) choose not to deal. The Lakers very much want DirecTV and Dish to shell out the doe.

It's possible DTV's negotiations with Time Warner are hung up on the Dodger media deal. Adding Cox at this point was a no brainer, because OC (south of Tustin?) subscribers didn't even have the choice of switching to Time Warner's cable service. But looking at Time Warner at odds with DTV, that's on the national scale rather than the local one IMO
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.

I have been saying this and I'm really starting to believe that TWC is the jinx. I'm superstitious like that....I think until the ordeal is resolved and both DirecTV and DISH get the channel, the Lakers will continue to lose/suck. :bang: :bang: :bang: :bang: :bang:

The question now is, would TWC lower the number per sub? Because you can not put them on a sports tier. Especially in the LA area. It has to be available to on normal package. What is it that DTV really wants?

You don't think they're losing revenue because of this as well? I assure you they are.

DTV's proposal was to offer it on specialty tier, which TWC rejected.
